17th Conference “Deformation and Fracture Behaviour of Polymers“

Within the scope of the international conference “PolyMerTec 2020” the 17th conference “Deformation and Fracture Behaviour of Polymers” will take place in Merseburg as an independent symposium from 17 to 19 June 2020. Merseburg's colleagues in polymer science and plastics technology like to request you very much to contribute an oral presentation or poster regarding the following topics:

  • Toughness assessment of polymer materials using fracture mechanics concepts
  • Long-term behaviour and ageing
  • Hybrid methods of polymer testing and polymer diagnostics
  • Deformation and fracture of elastomers and films
  • Morphology–property correlations
  • Polymer testing/failure analysis and component diagnostics
  • Biopolymers, biocompatible materials and medical implants

Furthermore, awarding grants for those participants from abroad who will give short lectures is budgeted if the application of funds was successful. The possible grants can be used to co-finance the conference fee and/or the traveling expenses.
